The tyre wear is fine for human players but it doesn't seem to affect the ai in the same way... I don't think Codemasters has ever been able to get ai simulation to work as it should in the F1 series imo.


I agree it's possible some of that maybe down to console limitations though they've pretty much stretched the consoles to their limits though I think in the last couple of years they've even said it.

I've decided when I can afford it I'm going to get F1 2014. I'm fed up of the tyre wear on 2013.

I'm still not 100% on whether I'll get 2014 or not the 2015 game will almost certainly be a yes given it's next gen. I'm tempted to get 2014 given they've rebalanced the difficulties but as I said I'm not entirely sure. I'm hoping that the career mode refinements aren't just an option to have shorter seasons and that there's more to it than that. But I am worried though that could well be all they have done.

But I won't be getting 2015, there's no way I can afford a next gen console as I want a car, 2014, new phone and I'd like a new Sunderland strip too.

Has anyone played Max: The Curse Of Brotherhood? I got it free with Xbox Live on X1. It's not normally the type of game I would pickup but thought I'd try it. It's actually pretty fun to play but I haven't got too far yet. Your only weapon is a magic pen (not sure if you get anything else yet) which you use to make me platforms and have to judge how large to do it to first be able to jump on it and at the same time high enough to get t the next part.

As you can tell I'm not great at explaining stuff but if you Xbox Live then you might want to try it as it's free, it's certainly a change of pace to the games I normally play.

I suppose that's fair enough if you have other priorities that's part of the reason why I'm a little hesitant myself on 2014 given I haven't got my next gen console yet but fingers crossed I'm hoping within the next week or 2 I will. Just depends on whether I buy the console from a shop or from an online retailer but I'd rather do it from a shop though and seeing as I've got a chiropodist appointment next week I think I may ask mum who's my carer to take me to the shop to get my XB1. I've already ordered Fifa 14 and Forza 5 for it as I chose those games to get me up and running as I ordered those once my debit card was fixed along with a couple of cables and a charge kit for the controller.

Really enjoying Infamous: Second Son on the PS4. Not sure how many hours I've put into this, but I must be getting close to 10. 

It's a great game isn't it, it's much more enjoyable than the last two. I love the neon powers as you can zoom about and the special power move is awesome although it almost feels like cheating. It's a very addictive game and at last the graphics are pretty good, the last gen versions hurt my eyes.

Had my first online league race on Forza 5 and came 3rd!  B) it's been a long time since I last raced online and a very long time since joining a league, it was good fun. The last online race I did was with Platy on Race 07 which was ages ago.

And he even had a hangover ...

Hehe o:) Got his racing excuse in early.  I probably could've finished quicker but was just making sure I didn't spin during the race, especially as I was comfortable in 4th as the next guy behind was pretty far back. I then  pretty much stole 3rd due to what happened to you guys at the front. Lol

maybe once you get more comfortable with the game you'll feel you can push more and be pushing for the win.


Got my games and other bits and pieces now just need a Homeplug and the console itself then I'm ready to go B)

I'm sure you'll love the X1 and even though Forza was rushed out to be a release day game it's still awesome. Each car is really detailed, and even though there's a lot less cars & tracks it's still awesome. I'm not sure how 200+ cars isn't very many for some people, I prefer each car to be really detailed inside and out unlike GT6 where many cars are ported from GT3&4 just so they can say they have 1000s of cars. 

Most people wont own more than a 100 cars unless they set out to collect them all. I myself only bought around 70 cars in Forza 4 so 200+ in 5 is fine in my book.

Yeah I heard there was only about 15/16 tracks or something whereas most racing games generally have 20 or more. Or if they are limited for tracks then like Autosport they split them into different layouts and call them different names like Yas Marina Championship circuit instead of GP circuit which refers to the F1 layout. Besides given it was built around being a release day game as it was I believe it was designed around showing what the console can do rather than showing off loads of features. Future games on the console will be the other way round have moer features as people will be moer aware what the console can do by then.

I'm thinking I'll try to be hungover for the next race too ;)

I'm still pretty annoyed about what happened on the last lap. Completely unnecessary and spiteful of him :\ Have you seen N3R0's footage btw dude? It was AdzS you nearly hit, and you stole 3rd with about a second to spare :p 

This is what happened at the end:

I had a bunch of races online on Race 07 this weekend. Really missed the thrill of online racing, lots of servers up atm so everyone should try it out one evening.

I've been thinking about installing that and GTR Evo again lately. I'm pretty sure I'll be picking up Project Cars this Fall so I should probably try to get back into the sim-racing mode.

So he nearly ruined my race as well then.  For some reason the video doesn't show up on my tablet, it's just blank. If I'd  known I stole it with a second to spare then I would've let him have it, but as I wasn't invited to group chat I didn't know. Lol


Doesn't show on my Xbox One either for some reason....

Just using the smartglass app for the first time and it's very nice. Makes typing messages to mate on Live much easier and quicker.


Edit: I can see it using my pc, why does N3R0 using the driving line in braking zones why he's clearly a fast racer?


I just watched the end part and feel bad now, I thought it was a car a lap behind and was probably less than a second from the line. Can't believe what adz did though...

You should get some online practice in on Race 07. Good community sometimes, plus you can get used to the constant ramming from people who can't drive like I'm sure PCars will be filled with.

Any ToCA Race Driver 3 players here? Bloody love that game, the online was great, loads of cars, loads of tracks and career mode was excellent. Only problem is that the AI didn't suffer from terminal damage like you did, which totally ruins the open wheel stuff where a slight crash can take you out while the AI just carry on.

I loved that game too. It's been so long since I played it though. I actually tried to find it the other week but I don't know where it is. Maybe I stupidly sold it. But yeah, I just love the fact there are so many real world race tracks, and loads of cars, great career mode. Why can't the new GRID games have that many tracks. It would be awesome.

Yeah I had and enjoyed those games too I only got rid of mine because it wouldn't work any more

Yea you'll have to let it install the game first (like Forza 5) which takes longer than a pc game. It does let you play before it's finished but will stop you playing if you get to a part that's not finished. I just let it install completely. I think for Forza it was downloading an update at the same time which is why it took so long.

haven't got that far yet as I've turned it off for the moment while I have my dinner then come back to it afterwards just checking the activity on here first.

Should've put Forza in before dinner bud as it takes a long time, for some it takes hours for it to complete which I hope M$ can find a way to make it quick like when installing a PC game. Like I said you can play when it gets to a certain point but it'll stop you playing at some point if it hasn't finished. 

It happend to me with NFS on PS4 as it said complete so I played it and it just stopped and went to pause menu, and when I looked it was still installing lol

Actually I was planning on starting with Fifa to be honest though not Forza but I do have both

Probably won't take as long installing Fifa as it's a smaller game. I still only have Forza for X1 but might get Fifa 15 when it's out for it, as I already have '14 on PS4. Don't think you'll get to test the new impulse triggers on Fifa 14 as I don't think it supports it, but Forza takes full advantage of them. Shooters make good use of them according to @RevolvingPrawn‌

Pretty shocking that Titanfall doesn't, I thought it would. If Sony made a similar feature then it would get implemented in more games. I remember when I got a PS3 it didn't even have rumble effect lol. I already have Watch Dogs on PC so I won't be getting it for X1.
